1. trust God to provide one day at a time
2. spread your wings
3. find a good, big tree
4. sing the song that's in your heart
5. get up early and look for worms
6. shake your tail feathers
7. go south then come home
8. flock with birds of your feather
9. keep perspective, look at things from a bird's-eye view
10. take baths
11. let go and be full of Peace
Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.

Catching a tiger, baiting a bully.
Was this my idea? Is it a mistake?
Why did you take me here?
Am I too far from home?
Am I really all alone?
Walk, child don’t run.
Go off and have fun.
We’ll be waiting.
Just look before you cross.
Take love with the loss.
I know it’s frusrating.
Reach but don’t push it away.
Say nice words and play with intention.
Find out what matters.
I know your heart’s been broken.
But martyrs never open doors.
The world is yours.
Carry this torch and use your voice.

I don't need none of your bad news today.
You can't have my fear, I've got nothing to lose, can't have my fear
I'm not getting out of here alive anyway.
And I don't need none of these things, I don't need none of these things I've been handed.
And the bird of peace is flying over, she's flying over and
Coming in for a landing.
~ Patty Griffin
